How A Good Succession Plan Can Make New Ownership Easier

When you enter the business as the new owner, you know that the seller is leaving. Whether they’re retiring, pursuing a new opportunity, or devoting all of their time to learning the lost art of close-up magic, they’re not going to stick around forever. You need to learn every aspect of what the seller does and you don’t have the luxury of time.

Because of that, the number one thing you need to do after taking ownership of a business is make sure you know what the owner did day-to-day, identify their key relationships, how many roles they hold, and anything else they do that helps the business run. Then you need to teach that knowledge to someone else and assign those roles to other people.

This is what we call a succession management plan.

But how do you recognize which workers are outperforming their compatriots and how do you use that knowledge?

In this article, we discuss how to identify high-performing employees, how to define success, and how to turn that knowledge into a system that can help you grow your business.

Finding Your Personal Flywheel: How To Unleash Your Full Potential

How do you organize your life? Are you able to point to your greatest successes and deepest failures and understand how they helped you get to where you are? In business, the flywheel concept was introduced by Jim Collins. It represents compounded investment of effort, where each step a business takes feeds directly into the next, which feeds into the next, until the cycle begins again, driving the business toward success. The flywheel concept has various applications in the business world, but it’s also a powerful tool for organizing our own personal lives. In this article, Acquira co-founder Hayden Miyamoto explains how to apply Collins’ lessons in a different way. He shows you how to make a personal flywheel that can help improve your life and the lives of those around you. The personal application of this concept actually helped in the creation of Acquira, by creating a method to provide capital, training, and systems to help people acquire businesses of their own.
